The compelling international bestseller adapted for the stage

Emma Donoghue’s bestselling novel Room has been adapted as a new play with songs by Scottish songwriter Kathryn Joseph and Cora Bissett. Previously adapted by Donoghue for the screen, the film won Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs.

 

Kidnapped as a teenage girl, Ma has been locked inside a purpose built room in her captor’s garden for seven years. Her five year old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside and happily exists inside Room with the help of Ma’s games and his vivid imagination where objects like Rug, Lamp and TV are his only friends. But for Ma the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room.

 

‘There is a moment where you feel you would fight anyone who tried to wrestle [the book] from your grasp with the same ferocity that Ma fights for Jack, such is the author’s power to make out of the most vile circumstances something absorbing, truthful and beautiful.’

The Guardian
